AFFORDABLE CONNECTIVITY PROGRAM
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) helps low-income households pay for broadband service. The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a federal government benefit program operated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The ACP will provide a discount of up to $30 per month towards broadband service for eligible households. The ACP is non-transferable and limited to one monthly internet discount. If the Program ends, or when a household is no longer eligible, subscribers will be subject to CASSCOMM’s regular rates, terms, and conditions.
Who is Eligible?
A household is eligible if a member of the household meets at least one of the criteria:
*Has an income that is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines
*Participates in certain assistance programs, such as SNAP, Medicaid, Federal Public Housing Assistance, SSI, WIC, or Lifeline
*Participates in one of several Tribal specific programs, such as Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance, Tribal Head Start (only households meeting the relevant income qualifying standard), Tribal TANF, or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations
*Is approved to receive benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch program or the school breakfast program, including through the USDA Community Eligibility Provision
*Received a Federal Pell Grant during the current award year
*Meets the eligibility criteria for a participating broadband provider’s existing low-income program
